Cartoon of Volunteers all shapes and sizes

The beer festival is organised and staffed entirely by volunteers and as it increases in size we need ever more help. We appreciate that an event of this kind can’t happen without the hard work and dedication of our volunteers. We’d love to see many of you back and all new faces will be welcome. Thank you to those of you who volunteered in 2016.

Working at the festival can be great fun, the work isn’t too onerous and previous experience is not necessary. We offer volunteers a range of benefits and we are grateful for the time you can spare.

You can specify where you would like to work, on the beer bars, selling cider or perry or perhaps take on one of the backroom roles (such as selling tokens or receiving and signing in volunteers from 8am to late); we will always do our best to try to accommodate your wishes. Most people prefer to help on the main bars, but please consider giving cider a go, it’s just as much fun helping on there.


Cider at the Festival

(Volunteers will not be asked to work on the admissions, glass washing or litter picking; this will be done by paid staff on behalf of Nottingham CAMRA.)



Please don’t assume an application is a guarantee and try to be flexible if possible. Priority will be given to those volunteers able to work during the critical times of Friday until late and Saturday afternoon, plus those also able to offer some assistance with set-up and take-down. On the days the festival is open there will be a late staff bus for the city area if you can help until or beyond 11pm.

If you do plan on attending as a customer, make us aware when applying and don’t assume you will be working. Tickets are selling fast and we don’t want you to miss out. If you have plans for travel, accommodation or time off work, again apply soon and make us aware.
